Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 2nd Special Service Brigade was formed in late 1943 in the Middle East and saw service in Italy, the Adriatic, the landings at Anzio and took part in operations in Yugoslavia. On December 6, 1944, the Brigade was renamed 2nd Commando Brigade, removing the hated title Special Service and its association with the German SS. The brigade as a formation, was not involved in Operation Husky, the invasion of Sicily, but 40 RM Commando was involved in the assault landings as Army Troops. In Operation Shingle, the assault at Anzio, No 9 Army Commando and 43 RM Commando were the only units involved. The whole brigade would be involved in the Spring 1945 offensive in Italy.
